It’s a beautiful day here (Michigan) – so this means that it will show up in Slate Run probably tomorrow – if it isn’t already there.

The Downy woodpecker is resident here. He stays all Winter – something I respect in a songbird. And while the Red-Winged Blackbird isn’t a resident, they sure make you think Spring is on the way. I saw the first one of the season arrive a few days ago.

I’m seeing 57 degrees here shortly before 1pm! If it isn’t already there Slate Run – give it a day  – it’s coming! But something we all realize is that this is probably a bit premature. Still you can’t blame a fella for pushing Spring a little bit!

(Saw the thermometer top out at 60 degrees today – they’re calling for heavy rain and possible 3″ –  6″ snow later Thursday…. …… at least it’s late Winter!)

    • Sorry Walt! I’m just starting to organize the BLOG posts in a more logical fashion I think….. maybe! As a result, I had to recreate them essentially 😦 – but I think it’s done now. I’ve always liked how your BLOG has comments at the end of each story. So I hope I’ve gotten this in the WINTER BLOG … like that now. I’ll go through the others in Spring and Summer a little later. Whew… I’m a little computer-fried UB at the moment. Ha!
